Javier always orders The Usual.
He rattles it off:
“Two eggs over easy with home fries, rye toast and coffee.”
A comfortable grin settles on his face.
“That’s been my order for years,” he explains. “Sometimes I think about changing it up. Maybe getting pancakes or oatmeal or those fancy waffles with strawberries and whipped cream.
“But I always stick with The Usual,” Javier continues. “Some people think it’s boring, but I like the consistency.”
He pauses for a moment and then adds:
“I was just reading that the Yankees are looking for the same thing.”
Javier scans the newspaper and reads some quotes:
“Derek Jeter: ‘We need to play with more consistency.’”
“Alex Rodriguez: ‘It’s all about being consistent with our approach.’”
“Jorge Posada: ‘We’ve done some good things, but not consistently.’”
Javier flashes a big smile.
“They should start with breakfast,” he says. “Come by the Crown Diner and I’ll order The Usual for everyone.”
